AAPI Family Day: A Joyful Time of Cultural Heritage


On May 18th, the The Joy Culture Foundation held the AAPI Family Day event, attracting numerous families to participate. On this day, many Asian authors shared children's book stories, and there were various booths and traditional games such as ring toss and marble fishing, allowing children to experience the games their parents played when they were young. These activities not only brought joy to the children but also subtly passed on Asian culture.


One of the invited booths featured the board game Empower Empathy. Empower Empathy is a board game designed by Dr. Angel Liang, suitable for children aged 5 and above. Players join a super squad to solve social dilemmas and protect the city of Empathropolis from the evil villain Goobi. This cooperative game helps children develop emotional awareness and empathy through role-playing as superheroes to resolve various social dilemmas. The game has won seven industry awards and emphasizes the cultivation of emotional awareness and empathy, making it perfect for families to play and learn together. The game is easy to learn, with high-quality and environmentally friendly design, allowing children to learn how to address and solve emotional dilemmas while playing.


An Ideal Place for Chinese Education


Since its opening in 2022, the Little Bookworm Chinese Library has accumulated over 6,000 Chinese children's books and regularly invites Asian authors to tell stories. Weekly free story times and craft activities create a relaxed and enjoyable environment for children to learn Chinese. This is not just a place for learning Chinese but also a place for the whole family to enjoy the fun of reading together.



This summer, the The Joy Culture Foundation has partnered with KTSF to launch the Little Anchor Summer Camp. This event will take place from July 1st to 3rd, allowing children to learn the basic etiquette of anchoring and have the opportunity to experience being a little anchor at the KTSF TV station. This is not only a learning opportunity but also an unforgettable experience.
